The Knights are having their annual Kansas Special Olympics fundraiser Friday October 7th, Saturday October 8th and Sunday October 9th. Supreme Council has set aside the second weekend in October every year to raise money for Special Olympics in every state in the nation.
Our council #7909 will be soliciting for monetary donations at the store entrances shown below while freely handing out Tootsie Rolls for goodwill regardless of donation. Proceeds are shared between our local Olympians 'The Olathe Trailblazers' and the states council sponsorship.
We'll be soliciting outside the following locations and dates:
- Hy-Vee at 14955 W. 151st Friday and Saturday
- Walmart at 13600 S Alden St. (SE corner of Blackbob and 135th) Friday and Saturday
- Prince of Peace Parish, after Sunday 7:30AM, 9AM, 11AM and 5PM masses
At both the Hy-Vee and Walmart locations at least 2 volunteers will be needed for each 2 hour time slot.
On Sunday at Prince of Peace 4 volunteers will be needed after each mass for about 10 minutes.
Family and friends are very much welcome. Children make great greeters and are encouraged to participate but only if their parent(s) are present. You do not need to be a Knight to volunteer, just a member of our parish.
Let's help these Olympians reach their dreams. Please participate.
